In 1966, middleweight boxing star Rubin "Hurricane" Carter was on the verge of becoming a legend. His career, however, was cut short when he was wrongfully imprisoned for a triple homicide. For roughly 20 years Carter fought to have his conviction overturned until one day a group of activists were able to get the case re-opened. 

Starring Denzel Washington as Hurrican Carter and based on a true story, The Hurricane is a triumphant look at the strength of the human spirit and its ultimate resiliency. Tune in on Sunday, November 11 at 8:30P/7:30C for the premiere of The Hurricane!
